I made this recipe as directed except doubled the garlic, salt, and pepper. Came out well. Definitely good to stir it several times while cooking.

Loved these potatoes. Made exactly as is except cut the recipe in half as there are only 3 of us. My 17 yr old son loved them as did my husband. Definitely a keeper!
